thoughts carry us here and there
bodiless, formless we’re free to travel
borderless worlds,
all welcoming
no hindrances through ether’s doors
traversing in a blink from here to China
wishing ourselves there is all it takes
engaging it clearly,
through our seeing eye
limitless encounters expand our horizons
gone with the physical are envy and hate
recognition of either has vanished forever
no comparisons
or dread
keep us small
surpassing the corporeal has liberated us all
a universal playground is for us to beckon
consciousness of play brings elation
delighting in each other gets our hearts to spin
nothing detracts from the love we feel
beyond all that is negative
we rest in peace
deathless, birthless, we’re merged with the whole
creating our world by unique perception
while beaming compassion
to every particle that exists

Chazinator invites us to write on alien worlds of our making over at dVerse Poets:  Why don’t you give it a whirl?

  1. Love you unique world, so much fun having the universe as a playground!


  2. This theme of going beyond the physical confines of the body is very powerful. It exhibits such a strong desire in the human spirit to be one with the universe and to eradicate those obstacles that obviously instill a harsh desire to dwell on differences and thereby find pretexts for harming and hating others. Your poem is marvelous in how it draws us into those possibilities.


  3. very cool…the last stanza is by far my fav…a great culmination of all before it but it to me is so succinct….i love that there is great compassion there…i only hope that one day we can experience something so grand…


    • Thanks, Brian..yes, have to have compassion..a very important component to having the universe as our playground.


  4. that would be cool…traveling borderless worlds…the worst borders are those in our mind..true..


  5. This poem resonates with me strongly. Particularly, passages like:-

    deathless, birthless, we’re merged with the whole
    creating our world by unique perception

    This is really strong.

  8. I think you have dreamed up a perfect heaven. May I come?


  9. Wouldn’t that be a wonder…if there was no hate, envy, greed or any of it even remembered.
    This is a lovely write. Ethereal and other worldly. I would love to close my eyes and ‘think’ myself in other places, how cool would that be!~! 🙂


    • Yes, a true wonder and very cool…I hope it will manifest someday. So glad you liked this..thanks for coming by. 🙂


  10. I like your thoughts on how it could be , without the restrictions and confines of the reality we live in. Nice.


    • Yes, unfettered by the confines of bodies and of our lower emotions. Thanks, Renee..always so nice to see you here.


  11. wouldn’t it be great if compassion was beamed to everything that exists (that’s rather Buddhist you know)


  12. Wonderful poem Gayle and if only all could understand the importance of thought.. For it is just as you put here.. We Can Beam them where ever. and they do make a difference.. Lets make each of our thoughts count as we send them out into the world.. ~Peaceful ones are sent your way Gayle and to our World… Love and Light Sue xx


    • Thanks, Sue..yes they make a great deal of difference..imagine our strength as a whole and what we could accomplish for our planet.

      Love and light beaming their way to you… xoxo


  13. I like this one very much, Gayle. I think you’ve gt a potential here to cover one of the seven deadly sins. I like your world. I believe I would like to join you wherever it is.
    I like these lines – no comparisons
    or dread
    keep us small
    A wonderful thought. Namaaste, Izzy xoxo


    • Thanks, Izzy. Well, I still am in my “form” stage so aren’t quite there yet…but’s an encouraging thought. Izzy, what are the other “sins” that will be covered in that competition? Couldn’t really tell the status of what had been covered and what was upcoming. Glad you liked this.



      • These are the Seven Deadly Sins for the contest. Pride –Envy – Gluttony – Lust – Anger – Greed – Sloth
        Gluttony and Envy have been completed. The next one was just posted on Katies blog and it is Sloth. The entry submit box isn’t due to her illness. It will be going up. She giving everyone extra time to work on it. Your writing has always been enjoyble to read. Give it a try … Really, don’t have a doubt. You will be great.
        Namaste ….


        • Thanks so much, Isadora. When I go to the site, I seem to have trouble finding the contest and which “sin” is currently being offered. I did write something but it ended up sounding more like “pride” than “sloth”…maybe a combination…haha. Oh well, I’ll keep trying. Namaste..


  14. Well written and much truth. Nice, nice work here, Gayle.


  15. ‘beyond all that is negative
    we rest in peace…’

    Excellent work, Gayle!


  16. “creating our world by unique perception” <—we do, indeed. 🙂 Nirvana to be this free and empty, eh? I hope we both get there, Gayle. It's nice to be able to experience even glimpses of it, as you have shown in this remarkable poem here. Thanks so much for sharing the vibe! 😀


    • Yes, everyone seems to bring their own unique way of seeing things. So glad you enjoyed the vibe, Corina. 🙂 I will be very content to be able to rest in peace when that day comes…and for you to join me! Bliss… xoxo
